Catholic assassin priests. Demonic, sword-wielding Scottish fairies. Pacifist Norwegian trolls. Germanic grain devils. All this and more in Markosia Comics’ critically acclaimed, limited series, PLAGUE, collected for the first time with never-before-seen bonus pages.
The Black Death was a real-life plague that swept through Europe in the 1300s, killing millions across the continent. But it was no accident - the Bubonic plague was a weapon, created by the church to wipe out mankind’s age-old enemy: the creatures of myth and legend.
Plague is a “FANTASTIC and well-written narrative” (Comic Unknown) that unites a cast of characters taken from history yet never before assembled in one comic, breathing life into humanity's darkest hour. It blends “The best of classical fantasy escapism mixed with the worst of medieval era real-life horrors” (Stranger Worlds) to weave a tale that is“layered and far more COMPLEX than you would expect from what appears to be a simple fantasy story.” (Comic Crusaders)
